Love Poems

Nobody really understands love.

Not the scientists, and certainly not the poets. Love defies understanding because it is never the same for any of us. It seems to be Universal. It seems to be Timeless. But, those are just illusions because, even though it's something we all experience, it's also something we all experience differently. Love is an individual experience, filtered by our own lives and expectations. No one truly understands it because it's invariably a very different thing for each of us.

These poems, like all such, are seemingly Universal. Seemingly Timeless. And yet very much a different thing for each of us. There is almost certainly one here written just for you and that special someone. We hope you enjoy the search for it as much as the eventual discovery of finding it.
